Is the water dripping from the tap shown in the picture or from the shower head? Replacement usually involves access inside the wall but repairs are easy to this type of tap.

Not sure how new you are but you have now removed all you can without turning the water off.

The water is dripping from the tap in the picture.

I think I can unscrew the tap from the front.

If so I hope I can find a replacement tap for both sides.

Be sure to turn the water off.Remove the part with the flat edge that needs a wrench or large pliers.Your favourite loosening oil will be handy.Once the part is out you may find it just needs an o-ring replaced.Run your finger carefully inside the part left in the wall checking for rough spots that would tear a new o-ring.If you opt to replace the cartidge part take it to the store with you, many of them look alike but don't fit.If you want to replace both be sure to get a hot and a cold.They both fit the same but turn opposite directions to turn off.Good Luck!!!

The install went well. I went to a place called "plumber's warehouse." I gave them my old parts and they knew what I needed. I wasn't sure if I should use plumber's tape, but I went ahead with it.
